Happy Memorial Day and Ian

Memorial day is such a beautiful reminder of something that we take for granted way to often... the price that was paid for our freedom. I am so grateful for those who have and are serving our country. So grateful for those who paid the ultimate price.  Thank you doesn't even begin to cut it.

And as I reflect this Memorial Day weekend on the thankfulness of those who were willing to do whatever it takes for us to be free- I cannot help but to think of families like the Stewart's who too are also willing to do whatever it takes to bring their son home so that he too may be free- to grow and thrive and live the life that God intended for him to live- in a family where he is safe and loved.

Here is a picture Ian- isn't he precious beyond words?

Ian lives in an orphanage in Moscow and he happens to have Downs Syndrome. The Stewarts have done everything they can and worked their hardest to come up with the funds to bring Ian home, but time is running short they need your help.

Please be in prayer for Ian and for the Stewart family. If you'd like to know more about Ian and be a part of the miracle of bringing him home please check out his story here.
